  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Allows four more goals Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/25/18) Rinne gave up four goals on 42 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 preseason loss to Carolina.

    Rinne's allowed four goals in each of his two preseason appearances, which isn't exactly what owners were hoping to see from the 35-year-old veteran. He fought off father time to win the Vezina Trophy last season thanks in no small part to the stellar group of defensemen in front of him, so Rinne's numbers should improve once Nashville starts icing all of its regulars in the regular season.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Tending twine Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/25/18) Rinne will start Tuesday's preseason game against the Hurricanes, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Rinne struggled in his last preseason outing, allowing four goals on 18 shots in a loss to the Lightning. Last year's Vezina Trophy winner is more than capable of bouncing back and should still be viewed as a top commodity in daily fantasy formats.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Coughs up four goals in preseason loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/22/18) Rinne stopped 14 of 18 shots in Friday's 5-1 preseason loss to the Lightning.

    The 35-year-old wasn't sharp, handing the Bolts a 3-0 lead less than 10 minutes into the game and giving way to minor-league veteran Troy Grosenick for the third period. Rinne is coming off a campaign in which he posted his best save percentage since 2010-11, however, so one rough exhibition performance shouldn't impact his standing as one of the NHL's elite netminders.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Blue-paint bound Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/18) Rinne will start Friday's preseason game against the Lightning, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    It will be Rinne's second act of the preseason, as he played half a game Monday and turned away 12 of 13 shots in a 5-3 win over the Panthers. It's likely he splits the net with Troy Grosenick again.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Wins Vezina Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/20/18) Rinne took home the Vezina Trophy awarded to the NHL's top goaltender, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Rinne has finally taken home the Vezina after three failed attempts prior. Those three close calls included a couple of bridesmaids and a third-place finish. Rinne compiled a 2.31 GAA and a .927 save percentage during the 2017-18 season, posting a league-best eight shutouts en route to a 42-13-4 record. He didn't fare quite as well in the playoffs, amassing just a 3.07 GAA and a .904 save percentage during the run and 3.49 and .900 marks during the seven-game series loss to the Jets in the second round. The veteran netminder doesn't have a contract heading into the offseason, so it's possible he could don another uniform if the postseason showing convinced the Predators' brass that it's time to give 23-year-old Juuse Saros the reins between the pipes.
